The American Association of Feline Practitioners and the American Animal Hospital Association recently released new guidelines for defining cat life stages as recommended by a task force of feline medicine experts. The guide-lines help veterinarians tailor specific health-care plans for cats depending on their biological and lifestyle needs.
The newly defined feline life stages are as follows:
- Kitten – Birth up to 1 year
- Young Adult – 1 to 6 years
- Mature Adult – 7 to 10 years
- Senior – 10 years and older
- End-Of-Life – Any age
